americans watch a variety of different outlets and programs. >> stephanie: right. >> and that crazy right-wing fat old white men watch fox news. when you segment up the population, and leave that one segment alone, they are always going to have fairly good ratings. >> stephanie: right. >> but what you are seeing is a result of their craziness. >> stephanie: right. >> when you tell your audience for months that there's no way barack obama can win, what do you think happens? >> stephanie: exactly. that's the problem too damn many of us watch it just for entertainment. >> oh, yeah, they should just rename it shoddenford tv. >> i watch it for work. you make me. >> stephanie: yep. let's dive into the right-wing world. this is brian [ inaudible ] [ overlapping speakers ] >> the radio equalizer.

>> stephanie: inneed. >> home invasions, robbery, rape, murder -- these things really happen. >> they are really marginalizing anyone who believes in the second amendment. >> stephanie: okay. >> not suddenly on the extreme fringe. >> very good point, karl frisch. >> i'm going to sue for liable on your behalf. it's not suddenly. and it's a lot more fun to get caught by news busters. >> i know radio equalizer is just boring. >> stephanie: right. >> news busters has some spunk. >> stephanie: every time i hear it back i think oh that was funny. >> yeah. >> they can take things literal, gee, i wonder why comedians are rarely conservative. but the reason they take it as literal -- when you are
confronted with humor that is satire the reason you take it literal is because you are unwilling to confront the issues. >> stephanie: right, and lawrence o'donnell talked about this, even these people who testified yesterday they don't have one case where anyone has protected their home with a military assault weapon. >> right. >> stephanie: what if five guys come in and my babies are crying in the background. >> yeah. >> and i once saw arnold schwarzenegger fighting for his daughter in his own home with a giant friggin' assault weapon. >> stephanie: that's right. they make it sound like every night is going to be -- [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> stephanie: if they had one case like that, they would have cited it.
>> oh we would know the person who did it intimately. >> stephanie: they are not accurate weapons. >> and by the way when i said that fox news was creating a nation of crazies, i was quoting bill o'reilly. >> stephanie: oh make sure you write that down for next time. >> i think bill maroney's head just exploded. >> stephanie: bill o'reilly will end up in the left-wing hate segment. all right [ inaudible ]. >> we tried this for ten years and it had no effect. what is going on here is a competition, because the emotional reaction of what happened in newtown which wears off over time, it always does, and the rational response of what can we do that will actually work. the more you look at this it's not had an effect it's not
going to have an effect. >> except when they had an assault weapons ban, which did have an attack. >> stephanie: and the number of incident with assault weapons have tripled. >> that's affect with an a. >> stephanie: oh okay. i love that they always throw this emotional thing at liberals. if you can't have emotion after newtown, what is emotion for? what is emotion for exactly? >> they are trying to say we're incapable of responding to a tragedy by using, you know, sense and, you know, common sense or whatever. i don't think the right is capable of doing either responding for emotion or with common sense. >> clearly the only simple thing to do is to arm toddlers with ak-47s.
>> stephanie: right. look at wayne lapierre yesterday. no emotion or logic. that's ridiculous the background check criminals aren't going to do that. that's the point you moron. >> that's why they can't get a gun -- >> lapierre made an ass of himself yesterday. >> i can't believe they still think he is a good spokesman for him. i know right? >> stephanie: and then they played the audio clip of him saying the exact opposite in '99. >> yeah. >> stephanie: rush limbaugh. >> hispanic immigrants are made to order conservatives. they think they are invested in hard work and using the cuban exile model, they are exactly
right. but the hispanic population has shifted and the cuban exile model is no longer the model. the mexican immigrant model -- >> oh! >> and they arrive with an entirely different view of america. >> he called mexican immigrants lazy. [ bell chimes ] [ applause ] >> his so-called cuban exile model, who do you think won the cuban vote last time around? >> obama. >> exactly. >> stephanie: hispanics are not behaving properly. >> rush limbaugh is not behaving properly. rush limbaugh is a hold out because who happens to be his audio are the old crusty white guys who -- they don't have a rational thought about immigration reform they see immigrants and the only weird they hear is mexican. >> stephanie: yes, and might we
go out on a limb once again out here in los angeles, every mexican person i know is the hardest working person i have ever met. quite honestly jokes aside, karl, that stuff is just racist and horrible. trying to divide between cubans and mexicans -- >> this coming from a man who used his housecleaner to get his drugs. >> stephanie: yeah. >> clearly she was cuban. >> stephanie: go to meeting, kids i don't understand how anybody running their business out anymore. we were on the road for sexy liberal, we were on the road for inauguration -- >> we can't get off our couches. >> stephanie: right we're lazy mexicans. go to meeting right from your

[ applause ] >> stephanie: hi karl frisch. >> hello. >> stephanie: somehow that song awakens the ghost of william f butler. [ inaudible ] has some thoughts on immigrants. >> it is very easy to live here and not speak english and not be a citizen, and still have a wonderful life and still get health care, you are assuming they are going to want to jump through those hoops, that's a
big assumption. maybe they want to continue living illegally and not paying taxes and enjoying all of the benefits. >> being lazy and all. >> right. there is a large portion of the fox news audience that doesn't speak english. and what is fascinating here is it shows -- as the immigration debate heats up i want people to read their coverage on fox news latino and you will see a news outlet at war with itself. >> stephanie: yeah, i -- karl maybe i'm missing the logic -- every time we get into this immigration debate i don't get it. if we do nothing, all of those same 11, 12 million people are still going to be here. >> these are mexicans who mow
our yards and clean our houses. and if they are citizens then we have to pay them more. and they are also brown and not deserving of benefits. >> stephanie: i see. bill o'reilly with colin powell. >> you being who you are, traditional guy, by supportingly as actively as you did barack obama you also put yourself in a category of intolerance on issues like entitlement culture, when you yourself were born in the south bronx and you made it on your own, the entitlement culture now extends to 50% of the american homes. all right? huge rise in it. so you are putting yourself in that bracket by supporting the democratic party through barack obama who seems their values are different than yours, general.
>> stephanie: wow. he just wanted to lecture him. >> wow. >> i don't know why anybody of seriousness would ever go on o'reilly's show. this is the likely treatment you would get. >> stephanie: yeah. >> i liked all of those things that bill mentioned that make colin powell's who he is there is nothing in bill o'reilly's character that is a match. bill o'reilly obviously doesn't know what he is talking about, but he is part of the same group of people at fox news that claimed that colin powell only endorsed -- that he only endorsed president obama because they were both black. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. sean hannity on the radio. >> we have become europe. obama seems to have succeeded in a large measure to transform america.
a lot of talk these days about how the gop can come back politically. i'll tell you right now, the quickest way politically that's a recession. if and when that happens, sorry no more blaming bush. we'll put a moratorium on blaming bush on this program. >> so he wants to caution a recession. >> stephanie: right. >> this is like after 9/11 saying there was never an attack like this under this president, and then when kerry ran it was oh, there is going to be another attack. now they want to lay blame of their actions at the feet of this president. the same thing happened in europe. in europe they did all kinds of cuts and then they were shocked
when they had to double dip. >> stephanie: yeah. karl frisch in person to cuddle or on the phone. >> have a good one. >> stephanie: love you. representative joe courtney next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table.
that for all of man kind to hear. >> really all of man kind. >> stephanie: uh-huh. representative joe courtney of the great state of connecticut joining us now. good morning, representative. >> good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: what a powerful day, i know your district borders newtown, but to see your former colleague gabby giffords it's hard to describe the power of that isn't it? >> it is gabby was in the same class when we entered congress in '06. every wednesday afternoon we used to have a meeting as a group, and it is still kind of surreal to see what has happened, but her amazing strength as a person is just -- you know it's
just -- words can't even really describe it. it's just so inspiring and so important that people -- the very simple direct short statement that she had that really framed exactly the challenge we have as a country. >> stephanie: and like you say it's hard to underestimate the courage it took for her to come and do that. that really was a surprise appearance, wasn't it? >> yeah the day she came in to vote on the debt limit, again it was just -- this is an incredibly good person with inner strength that, you know, continues to just sort of i think, amaze all of us, so -- and again her message yesterday was so important. >> stephanie: and i thought her husband mark kelly, incredibly powerful as well particularly in the moment that he smacked down wayne lapierre. it really is almost stunning what he said right?
the whole exchange with dick durbin about what is the point of background checks. dick durbin is like that's the point you moron. >> yeah, and the other important point that i think rebuts that is that we have had now the brady system up and running since the late '90s, and actually 1.5 million gun transactions have been blocked because of the system that is in place, which, again, is a very spotty system in terms of mental health records and states that don't really do a good job of keeping their criminal record but even with those handicaps it still works, and the notion that it just doesn't work -- this is one of the nra talking points. it's just fact rally false, and -- and again obviously, durbin's point that it's a deterrence to people to guy guns
is also the obvious counter to that claim. but i come from a more rural part of connecticut, and obviously there are a lot of gun owners out here. background checks is just not a controversial item. >> stephanie: right, 92% of americans are for background checks, right? >> absolutely. and i have been meeting with police chiefs in my district lately, and they do the psi it will permit applications. and they have signing permits for people that they have no confidence that they really know their true nature. and that's the one item you hear over and over again. it extents not just to gun purchases but to gun permits, to have a stronger database of background checks. by the way it also fits totally within scalia's decision on the second amendment, so the notion
that there is a second amendment problem, just read scalia's majority opinion. he explicitly states that society has the right to restrict gun ownership for people with criminal records and mental illness. >> stephanie: as you were talking about scalia -- don't you remember there was a conflict of interest thing he went duck hunting with dick cheney -- >> yeah. >> stephanie: i have heard many duck hunters make this point. you can only have three shots in your shotgun when you are a duck hunter, right? >> right. >> stephanie: so literally people have made the point we give ducks a better chance than our kids. why is there no outcry about you can only have three bullets in your gun before you have to reload, right? >> yeah, the controversies in
this issue are limitless. you can still see the caution that a lot of the senator were displaying there in some of the questioning, and this is still going to take a full court press by the president and advocates. last night in connecticut there was a public hearing in the town of nowtown that the state legislature conducted, and family after family who's children were killed testified, the local police chief, and again, newtown voted for romney. >> stephanie: yeah. >> this is not some kind of democratic strong hold here. but obviously, you know, this issue now has just kind of spilled into a much broader main stream. >> stephanie: and you are right, the parents i have heard speak, again, how much more incredibly powerful can you get than that and they are all saying the same thing, right?
>> they are. the notion that somehow this thing is just going to get brushed aside, or lost in the 24-hour news cycle is something that you can feel that -- that they are so anxious that that % not happen. >> stephanie: right. >> and talk about courage this has got to be the hardest thing in the world to be talking about this. >> stephanie: and representative their arguments honestly make logical sense when they talk about the only answer is more good guys with guns. the point of like how quickly this happens in 15 seconds how many shots you can get off, and wasn't that incredibly powerful with mark kelly saying this little girl would still be alive if he didn't have a 30-round clip. it was the 13th shot that killed her. and look at fort hood there were a lot of armed people
there. so obviously that is not the only answer. >> that's right. president obama in his package did put out there that the cops program should be expanded to allow for school resource officers, obviously, but you are not going to populate every school room with armed guards and that's why the issue of regulating smart regulations for guns has to be part of this. by the way the mental health piece is something that i think has some really good solid proposals in terms of there's a mental first aid kit which is to train teachers and counselors to start getting us better attuned to behavior that needs help. and school-based help senator which have clinical social workers, i visited one yesterday, and they have a waiting list in an elementary school for children who have mental health issues which is kind of unbelievable. but the bottom line is those
programs work in terms of getting young people young adults adolescence into, you know, good outpatient voluntary care that is going to avoid these horrible situations like the adam landis. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. representative take a listen to this, wayne lapierre and senator durbin yesterday. >> none of it makes any sense in the real world. >> mr. lapierre that is the point. the criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there will be a background check. you missed that point completely. and i think it's basic. [ cheers ] >> i think you missed the point -- >> i didn't miss the point you missed the point. >> stephanie: oh my god -- >> i'm not wrong you are. >> stephanie: the majority of nra members are for this.
>> yeah, it is outside of the scope of even the most stanch interpretation of the second amendment in terms of scalia and it's outside of the scope of what, you know, any person who interacts with these systems, these databases tell us there are huge gaps in terms of social security records, vas, there are government records of people who have been found incompetent that are not being shared with the database system. >> stephanie: it is huge. there is a terrifying piece about how the violently mental ill can guy guns. we couldn't even get wayne lapierre to say should there be a background check at our gun
shows? >> right. >> stephanie: how do you even invite someone like that to the table, representative when there is nothing reasonable he is willing to even start with. >> yeah, or people who cheat with straw purchases. that somehow is protected by the second amendment. people who lie on their application. 10,000 people were caught misrepresenting their application to guy guns. only 44 were prosecuted in 2010, and one of president obama's orders was to get the department of justice much more aggressive about punishing people who are lying. >> stephanie: right mark kelley really took it to wayne lapierre. a shooter was clearly mentally ill. and you look at case after case. the virginia tech shooter passed the background check. it is something that needs to be fixed need at itly doesn't it?
>> it is. and ironically -- i think actually having lapierre up there displaying how completely extreme and ridiculous his logic and agenda is i think helps isolate him in this -- in this debate. >> stephanie: that's true. i did for a moment think is he working for us? you can't cast a villain any better than this. >> yeah. >> stephanie: and like you say at some point -- i was saying right-wing world we -- they were talking about liberals being emotional, and i'm thinking if this is not a time after sandy hook when would be a good time to get emotional about this. >> yeah, that's right. and the argument has always been about taking away people's freedom in the past. and that's an emotional argument. >> stephanie: right. >> because legalistically -- no amendment in the bill of rights
is absolutist. you can't shout fire in a theater. it's all of the arguments. the fact is they have used emotion in the past to stop, you know, any ground swell or effort to have reasonable changes to gun violence laws and -- and so i think for the president and fore families if they have the willingness to -- to go out there and speak, good for them. >> stephanie: yeah. >> that they are appealing to america's conscience really. in terms of getting real change. >> i must confess i have housed red coats in my house. >> stephanie: at least jim is coming clean. all right. representative thank you so much for checking in with us on such an important day. >> appreciate it stephanie, have a good day. >> stephanie: the newtown dads are killing me with their
testimony. forty-seven minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> she was abandoned by wolfed and raised by republicans. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy.

[ applause ] >> stephanie: the c-word show. okay. mrs. hatcher writes -- i don't think it's terry. let's see, steph i recently discovered your show i had the same problem as the woman that is darning socks, the woman who never gets out of her chairs for three hours, so i plugged my
wireless headset into my tv, and i can listen. last week i wore the head phones to clean and my husband came home and said who is coming to dinner? and i said no one, i just listened to the stephanie while i was cleaning. i have become a 50's cleaning commercial. debbie and alex. i played the steph cast for a whole week in my yard. this would be the audio podcast. 795 a month if you are afraid of commitment. i played steph cast for the whole weekend in my yard while i was working. and it drove my republican neighbors nuts so they put a
60-foot privacy fence between us free of charge. thank you. >> you're welcome. >> it appears they are fixing our commuter remotely i have nothing on my screen right now. >> stephanie: your life has been erased. >> all of our audio is not there. so please don't ask me to play anything. >> stephanie: how about nothing right now. >> dead air. >> stephanie: let's a moment of silence. >> i hope it's fixed by the time we have to take a break. >> stephanie: so many things can potentially go wrong, that when you have a bad face i'm like what? did someone say something online, what is happening? >> i have to blue screens. >> stephanie: okay. steph my beloved wife and sadly chicago bear's fan sheila
received a football autographed by dick butkus. i'm not making this up. you don't suppose she is somehow related to your brother, do you. [ applause ] >> stephanie: my brother called it a game. i called it running for my life. he would yell butkus and that was my queue to run for my life and then my brother would tackle me and frequently i would get gushing head injuries -- so enjoy the butkus game. it's really fun. let's go to lisa in arlington. >> caller: hi, i just wanted to make a comment about the issue of mental health. folks with mental illness getting -- and guns. i used to live in illinois home of [ inaudible ] university and they had the shooting there the
year of the shooting at virginia tech. and that young man was undergoing private mental health treatment so it didn't come out or disclose for a gun so i'm just wondering about the need of not just public mental health treatment, but private mental health treatment being disclosed too when they are doing these background checks. >> stephanie: right. that's the thing. i do understand lisa privacy concerns, and i think there is a line with all of this stuff but a lot of these recent shooters were so far over that line. they had been -- the virginia tech shooter you know -- >> caller: yes. >> stephanie: i'm just saying i think there is a line there. because i understand people's concerns if you are a psychologist -- you still have a really bad look on your face and you are distracting me. >> i'm fine. >> stephanie: has something blown up? [ explosion ] ? >> i'm fine. >> stephanie: i'll just look at jim.
>> i'm just trying to . . . >> stephanie: hi donna in florida. >> caller: oh, my god, i got through. >> stephanie: yes, hello. >> caller: do you know how hard lobster fishing season comes to the keys, and the regulations we have to go through to get lobsters and my cousin's friend who hunt, they tell me new rules every day about hunting. they check their cooler for beers, they are not allowed to shoot from their buggies, the rules go on and on and on. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. and i don't understand why these gun nuts think that that analogy doesn't make sense. >> caller: my husband's friends are totally, totally, totally
against this assault rifle thing. they said there's no reason anyone needs one for anything. >> stephanie: exactly. mike thompson has been talking about this. he has been charged with crafting gun policies. he said federal law prohibits me from having more than three rounds in my gun for duck hunting. we're fine with protecting water fowl. >> but not humans. >> stephanie: right. he said when people say how dare you talk about putting limits on how many shells i can put in my gun, that somehow this is an front to god and apple pie, it is important to point out this is something we already do. the government felt it necessary to protect migratetory birds.
>> price of freedom having kids killed. >> stephanie: yes. hunters enforce this stuff. and you are telling me we can't somehow fix your entire background check and mental health system. read some of what we posted. >> yes, it's up on your facebook page. >> stephanie: thank you. annette in chicago. you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi, annette. >> caller: good morning. hey, the thing that totally befuddles me. i grew up in germany that's the country where according to bill maher, the police in the entire country shoots less bullet in a
year than the l.a. police shoots in a weekend. i'm not sure where he gets his facts from but people there have health insurance and here you can't -- you know, people don't want to be checked if they want to buy a gun, but if i want to get health insurance, disability insurance, life insurance, i have to go through a background check. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: it's just that whole backwards thing i really don't get. >> stephanie: yeah, i think to most people -- and that's why at least i'm hartened to hear those statistics that 92% of americans are for background checks. you think is this just common sense? >> caller: absolutely. >> stephanie: since you are in chicago, they said the majority of guns come from mississippi -- >> and indiana. >> stephanie: yeah, it's all the
things they try to say see there's gun laws there and that doesn't work. >> that's a red herring. >> where in germany are you -- >> stephanie: oh sorry. we're out of time. seventeen minutes after the hour right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: she is the life of though democratic party. ignore the lamp shade. it's the "stephanie miller show."
"stephanie miller show." they will be calling you the c word that's for sure. when you are featured on the fox news. wow. howedy new fox news viewers. wow, this -- this gun thing really brings the -- oh let's just say emotion to the floor. >> and all of the boys to the yard. >> stephanie: right. right. [ sighs ] >> stephanie: okay. i -- i don't know how you could not feel emotion when you saw gabby giffords show up in congress. >> i was just waiting for someone at fox to say she was faking it. >> stephanie: exactly. and i guess that was a surprise appearance to speak to her former colleagues. >> speaking is difficult but i need to say something important. violence is a big problem. too many children are dying.
too many children. we must do something. be bold, be courageous americans are counting on you. >> stephanie: you know, we were just talking about this, when she mentioned too many children are dying. it doesn't matter what statistic you look at. how about this one, among the 23 richest countries the u.s. accounts for 83% of child gun deaths. a bill introduced in 2011 would have made it a felony to have a gun that could hold more than ten rounds of ammo. the "new york times" just had a piece about what the cops -- some of the details of what the cops found when they got there. >> i don't want to imagine. >> stephanie: there was a little
girl standing alone in a classroom covered in blood she was the only one that survived with all of her dead friends around here. this article goes on to point out about wayne lapierre talking about good guys with guns. there was an armed guy at columbine. fort hood there were plenty of trained people with guns there. lapierre would have us believe that guns in the classrooms would make our kids safer, yet the u.s. accounts for 87% of all child-related deaths. >> and more guns is not the answer you would think. but that implies that you think. >> stephanie: david in chicago go ahead. >> caller: every time i listen to these gun advocates the one thing they bring up is the second amendment and the melissa as if they actually believe that them having a gun is somehow a
force to counter balance the government, and they need to be prepared to attack the government at any moment. >> stephanie: right. >> i'm a lawyer, and i believe the world militia is defined in the constitution and it's not the average joe putting a rifle over his shoulder. >> stephanie: yep. >> caller: and they need to arm themselves to the teeth. >> to destroy the government. >> caller: right. >> stephanie: the -- the guy who's wife was a school psychologist that was killed in sandy hook. he testified yesterday, and he said i have no idea how long it took to rebode and refire a musket, i know the somebody of
bullets fired at sandy hook was almost incomprehensible even today's modern age. and that's the thing you have to apply some modern logic. mark kelly yesterday. >> i'm a strong supporter of the second amendment as anybody on this panel. my wife would not be sitting in this seat, she would not have been sitting here today if we had stronger background checks. >> stephanie: the "washington post" did a piece perhaps the most important moment in yesterday's senate hearings when mark kelly directly confronted wayne lapierre over the shooting of his wife and another one involving dick durbin. lapierres argument was completely unmasked. he repeatedly voiced the talking point there is no need to expand the background system because criminals don't cooperate.
kelly said he said his plan was to assassinate my wife. but because of the gaps in the mental health system those -- we would have likely failed a background check. if we require private sellers to complete a background check and we get those records into the system we will prevent these kinds of crimes. good for him. mark kelley again yesterday. >> he did not have access to a high capacity magazine and the same thing happened christina tailor green would be alive today. i certainly am willing to give up my right to own a high-capacity magazine to bring
that young woman back. >> stephanie: and we have been talking about this all morning, that chicago everybody uses that as an example now. when you take a look at where these guns come from 25%-plus are sold in outside of the city. almost one of ten gun crimes in chicago the gun comes from indiana or mississippi, because of the background checks. >> they drive them right up to chicago from mississippi. >> stephanie: right, and somebody was mentioning the specific gun store where a huge volume of guns come from that go to chicago. and it's right outside -- it's not even that far of drive. and they were saying new york is different because the surrounding areas also have different gun legislation. >> right. which shows we need more universal -- >> stephanie: thank you. >> yeah. >> stephanie: it needs to be
said. twenty nine minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: call stephanie now. she's easy. 1-800-steph-1-2. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.
now you can even present from your ipad. >> woe. >> stephanie: you saw this thing, literally wow, gabby giffords, and mark kelly were testifying -- >> yeah. >> stephanie: right. right. and -- oh, this made me really -- they all make me really sad, but the 15-year-old girl that just performed at the inauguration gunned down in chicago a week after she performed at president obama's inauguration. she was at a park, someone jumped a fence, ran up and opened fire. she was a majorette, and that was the one that sasha and malia were dancing to. >> yeah. >> probably from indiana or
mississippi. >> just overwhelmingly sad. >> stephanie: chris murphy yesterday. >> we need to wake members up to the fact that if they want to do the right thing here there is not really a political price to pay at the hands of the nra like there were a decade or two ago. >> stephanie: yeah, 92% of americans want a background check. can't we get that done. and the nra -- he is sitting there facing all of these republican senator who he gave money to. yeah, oddly the question not quite as tough from republicans. republicans have benefited from at least $700,000 in various forms from the nra the nra's pac or -- >> i'm sure a coincidence. >> stephanie: yeah. don in oklahoma welcome. >> caller: hello. >> stephanie: hi, go ahead. >> caller: i just wanted to say first of all that i am 100%
supportive of background checks for everybody buying guns. i do have some concerns -- i'm a psychologist, and these mental health reporting laws. i'm not sure what people are talking about reporting, but what we know from the statistics people with serious mental disorders are much more likely to be victimized as opposed to being perpetrators. >> stephanie: senator franken made that point yesterday. he said not all mentally ill people obviously the vast majority is not violent. >> caller: i think it's much easier and much cheaper just to put it on the backs of mental health practitioners to do this reporting. we already have to report if we
think somebody is a danger to themselves and others but we also don't want to discourage people from actually seeking treatment. >> stephanie: i hear you. and don i encourage you -- we posted the peace from cnn how the violently mental ill can buy guns. all i'm saying there is a lot of pieces of this problem need to be fixed, but you can't read this and say this seems fine people who have been violently mentally ill in the past -- how easy it is for them to get assault weapons. >> oh, yeah i agree with background checks 100%. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: this is -- i mentioned this case yesterday. i was a little fuzzy on the details, but -- >> because you were -- >> stephanie: drunk. >> drunk.
>> stephanie: right. last november oklahoma city polices went to check on an elderly woman after relatives reported they hadn't heard from her in a while. she lived with her adult son gerald. this has erie parallels to adam. what police discovered was a horrendous case. one of -- and again that's what i mean -- there's a fine line between oh you told your psychologist you were depressed once to this guy. >> right. >> stephanie: and like i say this is not -- like the virginia tech shooter same thing had been adjudicated violently mentally ill. and police -- even if people like gerald hume who had a
history of violence friends said that his mother said he recently bought guns. they went in found think mother's body in addition to a handgun and three rifles police also removed a reciprocating saw, a white plastic trash bag -- authorities found parts of her body in the freezer, he is a known schizophrenic. he didn't steal his guns or borrow them. he bought them like any normal person would. he got them at wal-mart. hume bought the rifles at wal-mart in oklahoma and the glock at gun world in a nearby city. both are federally licensed gun dealers that conduct background
checks. many merchants are frustrating with the system, but what can the retailers do if a person passes the background check? we don't have the ability because mental health records are kept in each separate area. it is far too easy to pass a federal background check. so even the background system needs to be fixed. >> sure. >> stephanie: and wayne lapierre is not even for doing them at all. but federally licensed gun shops must use the national check system and as we talked about private gun show sellers, nothing. >> yeah. >> stephanie: even in the nics -- mental health records are concerned investigations found it's because of a huge legal loophole in the background laws that put guns in the hands of killers, according to a new
study the mayors against gun crimes. literally millions of mental health records are missing from the background system. all they care about is cutting the deficit, the republicans, so they don't want to put the money into this, and then they scream the guns aren't the problem. it's not about guns. it's about all of it, frankly. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: it's sad but sometimes it takes a national crisis to get people to notice. so the virginia tech killer killed 32 people as we know using guns he bought at a federally licensed dealer. he passed the background check even though a judge declared him mentally ill a year earlier.
the mentally ill may still easily buy guns. this whole article is just chilling. the only cases oklahoma sends to the federal system are people who have been forcibly committed. hume did not meet that criteria. no one seems to know of any [ inaudible ] that have been handed out. karl mccarthy. the law has never acted the way it was designed for. it has never even had close to the full amount of money it should get. now we have these deficit cutters that aren't -- what is important in this country? i mean really? the secondarily relates to state's privacy laws. many states felt they may need to -- erroneously felt there was privacy issues. there is not for this kind of stuff. there needs to be a federal data
base. they hope the new fixed gun checks act will increase funding to put some real teeth into the law. nelson, the oklahoma city police chief, he said we used to have good mental health systems here but when they took the money out of mental health especially in a state where we like our guns, these people became our problem. it's a good article, but it's terrifying. not good bedtime reading. >> no, but it's posted on your facebook page. >> stephanie: thank you. tony welcome. >> caller: all right. quick, the two things that i'm concerned about is we keep moving the goal post here on what we want to have happen.
we already have an assault weapons ban on the books -- >> stephanie: it expired. >> caller: right, but my point is we keep talking about background checks but we should be talking about reactivating what was expired but it didn't work. >> it did work. >> stephanie: i agree and put more teeth in it tony. >> caller: exactly. every show i listen to it's like we're just trying to get background checks -- >> stephanie: that and the gun show loophole, there are things that should be such low-hanging fruit in this debate. and that's why to me the wayne lapierre's they don't even deserve a seat at table, because they are not willing to do anything. all right, forty-five minutes after the hour. we'll continue on the "stephanie
miller show." >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking?
discussing lung cancer. >> stephanie: yeah we talked about cigarette advertising. and senator diane feinstein. >> the nra is venal. they come after you. they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. >> but they have a lot less power than they did ten years. >> stephanie: yeah. here she is with wayne lapierre. >> i want to thank everybody for being here particularly our witnesses, even you mr. lapierre. it's good to see you again. i guess we tangled -- what was it 18 years ago. you look pretty good actually. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: but it doesn't make any sense, somebody was showing the testimony in 1999 when he was for background
checks. and here he was yesterday. >> none of it makes any since. >> mr. lapierre that's the point the criminals won't go to purchase the guns because there will be a background check. you missed that point completely. [ cheers ] >> senator i think you missed -- >> let there be order! >> the point is you can buy guns illegally out of the back of a car. >> stephanie: yeah, so let's just not do anything. >> we need layers of things. and hopefully, one, two, or three of those layers will catch the criminals who want to get guns. >> stephanie: yeah. angie welcome. >> caller: i love you guys. can you say hi pup and pepper. >> stephanie: hi pup and pepper who is handsome and romantic. >> caller: thank you. i'm in school to be a teacher. but i was calling because in
virginia they just tabled that measure where they were going to try to fund -- to fund -- or guns in school basically for teachers and training fire all of that stuff. >> uh-huh. >> caller: i don't know if you have seen that mean with the skeptical black kid, you mean you have enough money for training teachers and using guns but not enough for supplies? >> stephanie: yeah, that's right. and you better have it on you all the time, and be sure to protect it from kids -- he said i have one, and it's an awesome responsibility. and he said teachers are there to teach. >> caller: exactly. >> stephanie: but literally think of even just the visual of that. you would have to have it on you.
he said you can't have in your purse or in your desk -- >> while you are at wal-mart picking up school supplies pick up an ak-37. >> caller: exactly. >> stephanie: albert in milwaukee. >> caller: i'll be as brief as i can. i wanted to tell you that i have a cousin -- and my family is from the dominican republic and if you have never been there, you don't know what you are missing. you can have a handgun. and my cousin he is in the dominican navy. he was here visiting. we web to a gun show first time i had been to one. he was shocked what he saw in there. and he even could have bought an automatic rifle. he told the guy, my dominican pass port is in my cousin's car.
the guy was ready to give it to him without it. >> stephanie: albert now that this debate is in the news you see a lot of these clips of gun shows, and i'm like any of those people can just buy a gun with no background check? pretty much all of them look like they shouldn't be able to buy a gun. >> caller: he was shocked. he said anybody terrorist could walk in here and buy guns. >> stephanie: yeah, yesterday, the nra apparently they don't even want people on the terrorist watch list to not be able to get a gun. >> caller: but they are beholden to the gun manufacturers. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: and that is what is happening here. and i'm wondering why if people want an automatic weapon in this country, why can't they be kept locked down at gun ranges. have your military style
obstacle course over there, keep it locked down -- >> stephanie: somebody made the point that adam lanza's bother was a, quote unquote responsible gun owner, and apparently even kept them locked, and boy they sure helped her, didn't they? >> caller: they helped her a lot. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: she died from her own guns. >> stephanie: somebody was talking about that statistic on cnn how much more likely you are if you have a gun in your house to have it used against you. john you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi, stephanie. i watch your show all the time. and i would like to point out one thing. i used to be a -- a member of the nra.
no longer. i gave it up. i think they are off the wall. but i think why they resinate with people is that, you know there's something missing from the dialogue and that is the government. what -- after we get these laws in place -- and i do believe that we should have these laws in place and background checks and get rid of the high capacity magazines, but what is missing -- and maybe you heard it -- i haven't heard it yet, is that what are we going to do when we catch these criminals? what are we going to do with the drug traffickers or the people smuggling the guns in? there's no dialogue about -- is it going to be ten years? it is going to be no parole? this is what -- and i direct your attention to what happened here in webster, new york where we had a heinous criminal beat his grandmother to death with a claw hammer and the government
turns him lose after new york state spent thousands of dollars to convict, 12 people of his peers, and they turn him lose and then they tell us they lost track of him -- >> stephanie: how long did he serve in prison? >> caller: i don't know. he served some time, but the fact is is there any wonder why people are arming themselves when government is turning their criminals out like this. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: he is not just a guy that has cheated on his taxes -- >> stephanie: obviously there's some flaws in the legal system. i can't speak to why that guy would ever get out. you would think that that would not be -- that wouldn't be a parole-worthy offense. >> no, i'm sure something happened that we're not privy too. >> stephanie: yeah, but in my opinion it still doesn't justify us all having military assault weapons. somebody was talking about some of these guys had body armor.
that's what we were saying -- >> hum. i don't know. >> unless you are in the military. >> stephanie: right, if you are not a cop or in the military -- >> role play? [ laughter ] >> well. >> wow! jacki's mind defaulted to that. >> no. >> stephanie: if you are paranoid at being attacked. maybe because i'm menopause sal, i'm already sweaty enough. >> your body armor would have like puppies and feet on it. >> stephanie: exactly. here she is jacki schechner. >> good morning, everybody. we are continuing to listen in on former senator chuck hagel's confirmation hearing.
and his opening remark hagel alluded to some of the controversy he has been facing up to today's session. he heyed there is plenty to analyze and criticize, but that he is and always has been committed to the united states maintaining a strong defense. >> no one individual vote no one individual quote no one individual statement defines me my beliefs ore my record my overall world view has never changed. >> he goes on to emphasize his commit to veteran's rights and making sure our policies are worthy of the service and sacrifice of america's men and women. after yesterday's high-profile hearing the senate judiciary committee says it plans to have a gun bill ready by the end of next month. it likely will not include an
assault weapons ban. it would likely call for universal background checks gun trafficking, and include some sort of mental health screening or enforcement of the current laws we have in place. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us. ♪ right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table.
